Yuvatha is a neatly packaged youthful entertainer with meaningful lyrics, good music, a credible story, bouts of suspense, a little romance and light-hearted humour.
Young bachelors Ajay (Ranadheer), Kiran (Narasimha Uthkam) and Subbu (Subhash) stay in Hyderabad pursuing their respective career dreams.
Veerababu (Nikhil), a childhood friend, comes from their native village and joins them. He meets Vishalakshi (Aksha) under peculiar circumstances and has a romantic relationship with her.
Subbu wants to become a film director and finally gets his chance, but gets bashed up by his enemies. He has been hospitalized and needs expensive surgery.
Ajay, his girl friend Madhavi (Monali Choudhry), Kiran, Veerababu and Vishalakshi approach a vicious money lender (Narsing) and get on loan the required money for Subbu’s hospital expenses.
Problems erupt when the loan pay back time arrives. There is no way to get money except by robbery. They decide to rob the establishment where Kiran is working.
They make a meticulous plan for the operation robbery. When Ajay and Veerababu break in, they get caught by the police on the spot.
The rest of the story deals with unraveling the mystery of robbery.
Nikhil has acquitted himself well in his care-free character Ranadheer, Narasimha Uthkam and Subhash have given decent performances. Aksha and Monali Choudhry complete the glamour quotient.
Sayaji Shinde is his usual competent self. Narsing, Jeeva, Jayaprakash Reddy, Srinivasa Reddy and Prithvi essay their roles with a touch of humour.
Parashuram, on his debut, comes out with a refreshing story, catchy dialogues and a tight-fisted screenplay that makes the audience glued to the seats. Though he has taken some cinematic liberties here and there, they do not interfere with the narration or its velocity.
Lyrics and music are good. Cinematography, choreography, editing and audiography have nothing special to mention about, but have the normal standards of today’s film-making.
Yuvatha is actually a crime thriller but interspersed with youthful antics and genuine humour. This is a neatly packaged entertainment delivered in a different mould.
